I'm considering taking a day off work as I have a painful and itchy rash inside my buttocks. I can't sit still! I want to call in sick and see if I can get rid of it but don't know if I can bring myself to give the reason to my male boss. Would you just say you felt sick or something?

Just say rash x

I'd just say I've come out in a bad rash and not specify where. Although honestly I'd probably stop by the chemist, get some cream and go to work.

Put some hydrocortisone in and go to work!!

Yeah just tell him you've got a rash and you're not sure if it's contagious or something so that you don't have to explain you can't sit down

Yes, just say you've got an inflamed rash.
You need barrier cream and possibly a gp appt if it's infected.

Yeah maybe could get something that kills the pain and itch and just get on with it!

I suggest you get barrier cream and go to work
